Philippine Union College (PUC) to Adventist University of the Philippines (AUP)
Growing is a package of joy, crises and pain, which PUC experienced in all phases of its community existence. Through all these, PUC has kept on “shining.” On August 1, 1996 in accordance with Republic Act (RA) No. 7722 and by the virtue of the Resolution No. 132-96, Series of 1996, the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) granted AUP the long-awaited University Status entailing the change of the school’s name from Philippine Union College to Adventist University of the Philippines (AUP).
